replacing buttons

Last Saturday, I tried my hand in repairing/upgrading two of my clothes. (Saturday’s post is here

These are the clothes that needs new buttons. The abused,comfy,fave blue nautical sleeveless one lost one of its buttons and the lilac shirt dress we got on sale with the awful pearl-ish buttons (they have to go!). *I sort of dislike pearls, for me pearls are for the more mature group… but that’s just my opinion*

the before

My project -the before shot

Got all my materials from Michelle’s located in Tutuban Mall in Divisoria. (They sell their buttons by the dozen and the place is a crafter’s wonderland.. full of beads, buttons, ribbons, lace, etc. But, as with most crafting stores, the storekeepers are hardly any help at all.)

Then I went to work. Sewing felt therapeutic for me. I chatted with my sister while D.I.Y.-ing the clothes. Till I have attached the last button. I am quite happy to have restored the blue nautical sleeveless shirt using the plain white buttons. The lilac shirt dress also looked better with the berry colored flower buttons! *looks more age appropriate for me! hahahaha!*’

finished project -new buttons!

I am pleased with how the project turned out, wearable clothes again! Also happy to have spent time with my sister. Not bad for someone who almost flunked Home Economics.  

While writing this, I am wearing the comfy blue one right now.

thankfully, finally

It is scorching hot in Manila. but thankfully, finally Saturday. Weekend is here.

I’m up early to go to work and then go buy buttons to repair some of the items in my closet that lost their buttons. I also have to pick up a skirt from the tailors.

Then I’m off to get my eyebrows done and maybe get nails done too. Its been a while since the last… 

Meiji Apollo Chocolate Bunny

One of my favorite chocolates-Meiji Apollo Chocolate in Strawberry *I also adore the little bunny!*

I feel ‘happy dancing’ like the bunny in the Meiji chocolate box I just finished off. (I really have a happy dance, that I do when I feel happy.)

This photo below reminds me of that my bunny rabbit Pepper who looks exactly like that! She also love strawberries as much as I do.

Then pick up some fresh fruits before I head back home to freeze for the rabbits to enjoy.

Happy Weekend Everyone!
